You can see from the comments below that people like us. It's actually pretty simple: we've taken the burden of photography off you and put it square on our own shoulders. You shouldn't have to pay high photography rates with no guarantee that the photos will come out. We won't make you take that risk. That's how it should be."

Annette Culp - 2009 Midland Debutantes

"I cannot speak highly enough about the job that Curtis and his team of photographers with Leave the Camera (LTC) did for the 2009 Minuet Club Debutante season. This was the fifth year for the Minuet Club to use LTC but the first year to use them as the sole photographer for this entire season of events. Curtis was extremely reliable, prompt, flexible and professional and I found him to be very enjoyable and easy to work with. The individual photos and the group photos he took of the Debs at presentation ran very smoothly and efficiently. He also captured each girls debut and bow perfectly. The candid shots were fun and plentiful and the quality and pricing of the photographs were outstanding. This was also the first year for us to order table-top photo books from LTC. The books were beautiful and a lovely keepsake for the debutantes and their families to enjoy for many years to come. Curtis and his team at LTC exceeded our expectations and I will definitely look forward to working with them again!"


Laura Ingram - 2009 Gala Project Chair

"2009 was the first year that The Midland Symphony Guild had used the wonderful photographers from the"Leave The Camera" team. Not only did they set a beautiful backdrop for professional quality studio like portraits for all three of our weekend Gala events, they provided beautiful and fun photos from their crowd "roving" cameras. We have received such positive feedback from out members about the quality of their work and the ease of ordering from their website that we will definitely book them again next year!"


Susan Atchison

"The moms of the Minuet Debutantes have been thoroughly pleased with the work Curtis has done for us the past few years. He is always on time, personable and flexible. He is careful to be sure every girl gets equal coverage and he uses a nice balance of candid shots and posed ones, thus keeping everyone happy. I think he is especially good at candids -- which are traditionally the hardest to get. Curtis is very professional, making himself invisible when necessary and easily found when needed. Having LTC at our events assured me that photography was one thing I would not have to worry about. The prices are also very fair, ordering is easy and the delivery of photos is quick. LTC is a very valuable resource for Midland."


David and Betty Ann Whitten

We couldn't be more pleased with the pictures Curtis took of our special day. Our wedding was Friday, April 13. Before noon on Tuesday, April 17, we had our CD delivered to us with all 582 pictures he had taken. Curtis was there for our rehearsal on the Wednesday before our wedding and he was there for pre wedding activities and stayed throughout the ceremony, dinner, reception, and dance that followed.

When last minute weather conditions (high winds) moved our ceremony indoors, Curtis was ready with backdrops and lighting to accommodate the changes. The many candid shots taken will make for lasting mementos for everyone in attendance as well as those who were unable to be there. Thank you, Curtis for a stupendous job. We highly recommend hiring Leave the Camera for your next event.


Debbie Byrd, 2006 Minuet Club Debutaunte Pictures/Video Chairman

Curtis and LEAVETHECAMERA recently attended several of our Debutaunte season festivities. We couldn't be happier with the pictures! Also, they were there until the parties were over and the pictures were on the web page the next day! We will ask that they be invited back next year!


Woody Kupper - Permian Basin Fair & Exposition

LEAVETHECAMERA was a GREAT service to the 2006 Permian Basin Fair & Expo! As President of this Fair, I can honestly tell your potential clients that you and your staff exceeded all expections in providing quality digital photographs for all of our events. Based on the number of people I saw lined up at your booth Building A, I believe that the customers were pleased too.


Kay McDowell - Permian Basin Fair & Exposition

Leave the camera is the best! The staff worked long hours at the Permian Basin Fair & Exposition to capture every event. The pictures of the participants in these events were superb. I had Curtis Routh with take pictures of our entire family at the Fair. He worked sheer magic in getting 21 adults and children in the same photo with everyone looking at the camera. Great job! We look forward to a long relationship with


Tim Edgemon - Big I jr. Classic National Committee

Leave the camera made our national event complete. His work was praised by our national staff, and we are working to use him again next year in Idaho. All the pictures were of the highest quality, and I don't think one participate was left out. Curtis was very easy to work with and made sure all the pictures you needed were of the utmost quality.


Kay Magruder Hawklee - 2005 Debutante Parents Committee Midland

Leave The Camera was a great addition to the Debutante Season. Curtis Routh came to one of our meetings and explained their range of available services. The pictures were spectacular! Curtis will do anything to get the best shot, at one point he was perched on a 30 foot ladder juggling two cameras. After each event, I could hardly wait to get on the website to see the pictures of our family and friends. Ordering on the website is a breeze. By the time the season was concluding, Curtis had become the most sought after person at the parties! He will be a mainstay at Debutante parties from now on. I highly recommend hiring Curtis so that you may "Leave The Camera!"


Lisa Telchik - Lamesa Jubilee '05 President

"We had a Centennial Celebration for our community and school. We hired Leave the to take pictures for the historical event. They took amazing pictures to document our celebration. Curtis really has an eye for the 'perfect shot'. We were very pleased with his documentation of our Centennial celebration."


Treva Gosch

"I received my order and absolutely love it. Thank you so much for your devoted time and effort. I know that this will make a great present for my mother. Continue the great work, and may God bless you and your business."


Deydra Newsom

"I received the pictures I ordered of my daughter dancing at the fair with her group Dance Elite. They were beautiful! Thanks to you we have some great memories to hang on our wall. I have also told the other mothers to take advantage of the web site and hopefully they will order as well. Again, thank you."


Ivi Villanueva

"I just got married almost 3 weeks ago and I am so glad that we found LTC. They were awesome!!! The pictures turned out PERFECT. I couldn't have asked for better pictures. If you ever need a photographer is the ONE!!! They are GREAT!!!! Thank you so much again. I know they are going to take pictures for us again very soon."


Juanita M. Estrada

Robles Quinceanera: Mr. Routh and his services are awesome. We did not have to worry about taking any pictures, he did a wonderful job and we were able to enjoy our daughters special day. The pictures are beautiful. There are no words to describe how Mr. Routh captures the moment and brings it to life. The wonderful thing about it is that family and friends that were not able to attend could view the pictures and order on-line. If you are planning a celebration I truly recommend you contact Curtis Routh.
